C. Andrew Salzberg, MD
Dr. C. Andrew Salzberg is a New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery and breast surgery, including breast reconstruction. He is the Director of Integrated Plastic Surgery Services at the Mount Sinai Health System and the Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. John's Riverside Hospital at Dobbs Ferry Pavilion and Westchester Medical Center. He also operates at the Institute for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery within the Hudson Valley Hospital Center and The Mt Sinai Hospital.
Dr. Salzberg is best known as the pioneer of Direct to Implant and AlloDerm Breast Reconstruction. This type of breast reconstruction is replacing the traditional Tissue Expander Method, which required two surgeries with in-office biweekly expansion for several weeks in between. His new, pioneered technique allows him to put in a permanent breast implant with no need to expand or have a second surgery because of his approach in using AlloDerm to act as coverage and support of the bottom portion of the implant.
An internationally renowned speaker in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Salzberg specializes in the use of Strattice for Secondary Breast Augmentations. His renowned expertise with Strattice allows him to overcome some of the most challenging cases such as bottoming out, symastia, rippling and wrinkling, fold malposition and mastopexy/augmentation. Dr. Salzberg is also diversified in Fat Transfer for Revision Breast Reconstruction along with Natural Fill Breast Augmentation.
His many attributes include being recognized as one of the Top Doctors for Women from Coast to Coast; by the consumer guide, America's Top Doctors, published by the Ladies Home Journal, as well as bestowed the honor of being named one of Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area every year consecutively since 2002.

- Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology at New York Medical College (1987)
- Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Castle Point VA Medical Center (1987-1997)
